    I know how you feel! I was telling everyone I knew when we got our first egg. They kids went crazy over the green & blue eggs the first time they found them in the nest.

    Well were twins cause we got our first egg yesterday to !! We have 5 buff orpingtons and not sure who gave it to us but we thanked all the girls anyways. Does anyone know if they start out small and get bigger, the first one was like a mini egg?
